Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

BAKERSFIELD, CA - The New Mexico State women’s basketball team fell 60-59 in a grinder at CSU Bakersfield on Thursday night in a defensive slugfest.

Both the Aggies (7-13, 4-3 WAC) and Runners (13-7, 5-2 WAC) both came out of the gates locked in defensively. Both teams shot 3-13 (23.1-percent) from the field in the quarter and the Aggies led 12-10 after one. NM State forced four turnovers in the quarter.

The second quarter was more of the same, as the two programs who hang their hats on defense continued to trade stops and force turnovers. However, NM State was able to stay in front and led 21-19 at the half. New Mexico State held the CSU Bakersfield to 30-percent shooting (6-20) in the half.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Senior Lashira Tremble is the Western Athletic Conference Women's Indoor Track Athlete of the Week for Jan. 20-26.

The native Peoria, Ariz., was in midseason form at last weekend's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Collegiate Invitational in Albuquerque N.M., as she put her sprinting prowess on full display in the NM State track and field team's second meet of the year.

Tremble set new personal bests in the 60m dash and 200m race, coming across the line in 7.44 seconds and 24.80 seconds, respectively. Her performance in the 60m dash is the second fastest time in program history and ranks as the top time in the WAC this season.

NMSU Men's Basketball Staves Off UTRGV In 67-62 Win

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

EDINBURG, TX - Dealt another dose of devastating news Wednesday morning when it was announced senior Trevelin Queen would miss four-to-six weeks while recovering from a lateral meniscus tear, the same old questions popped up regarding the New Mexico State men's basketball team.

How would they recover? What happens now? Is all hope lost?

Saturday night, the Aggies answered each and every one of those questions - and probably a few more - by doing the one thing they have done in league action on a more consistent basis than almost any other team in the nation over the past two-plus years.

They won.

Ivan Aurrecoechea could not be stopped on the block and the Spaniard finished with a game-high 19 points - including a pair of big-time free throws with 24 seconds to go - and the Aggies held off a late charge by UTRGV to earn a 67-62 triumph inside the UTRGV Fieldhouse.   Continue Reading This Post >>

NMSU Men's Basketball Defeats Seattle 75-67

Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

SEATTLE, WA - Perception was reality in the Redhawk Center Saturday night.

Fans in attendance saw a New Mexico State team that was facing extreme difficulty getting its shots to fall. A team that was on the ropes after going own by 11 points early. Then, the perception of the Aggies changed. They became a team that fought and clawed their way back into things until the reality was this at the end of the night: the Aggies are still the team to beat in the WAC.

Ivan Aurrecoechea made a mockery of the Redhawks' interior defense, shredding it to ribbons to the tune of 19 points and 11 rebounds, Jabari Rice joined his senior teammate in double-double territory with 17 points and a career-high 11 boards and the Aggies overcame an 11-point first-half deficit to claim a hard-fought 75-67 triumph at Seattle U.   Continue Reading This Post >>
